Develop Carbon Footprint Measurement and Reduction Strategies for Products and Manufacturing Operations
Module 1 under SIMTech’s WSQ Graduate Diploma in Process Technology (Sustainable Manufacturing)
This unit covers the knowledge and issues relating to carbon footprint measurement across operations and the value chains. The course involves the demonstration of practical quantifying methodologies and standards, as well discussions on how carbon footprint assessment can increase manufacturing efficiency. Key carbon reduction strategies such as life cycle thinking, resources management, and 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) will be taught together with practical examples and applications. Participants will be able to take away practical knowledge and apply them in their respective work environments for the quantification of their company’s carbon footprint and continuous improvement towards sustainable manufacturing.
